Surgeons may get remote assistance with new 'telementoring' system

from Phys.Org

Researchers at Purdue University and the Indiana University School of Medicine are developing an "augmented reality telementoring" system to provide effective support to surgeons on the battlefield from specialists located thousands of miles away. In telementoring, a surgeon performing an operation receives guidance remotely from an expert using telecommunications. However, current systems require the surgeon to shift focus to a nearby apparatus called a "telestrator," diverting attention from the operating table, said Juan Wachs, an associate professor of industrial engineering at Purdue. more
